. president obama has talked about the middle class throughout the summer. and if you talked to the obama campaign, they think that is why their economic message has resonated so much because the middle class has been in trouble for a long time. the flip side of that is governor romney is having to try to sell voters on the idea that things are so bad that they can't re-elect the incumbent. the position was, they started from that position, voters aren't going to re-elect this guy and they were going to win. the fact they are making that case now is the reason why they have shifted. >> as jim pointed out from the very beginning, romney's strategy was that the -- essentially obama would sink of the weight of the economy and wasn't an implausible idea and still mike work and unemployment has been above 8% for 4 straight months but it is not getting over the line. the republicans are taken aback by that and don't seem to have as strong a plan b as perhaps in retrospect that they wish they will have h had had. since they aren't willing to fire obama because of the economy, there is a se

case against obama. this is the second or third gaffe just this week. we are talking about almost all of the increase on the backs of businesses. it is hard to understand how you create more jobs for this economy if you are putting or taking money out of the pockets of the businesses that create them. joe biden was saying we are proud of the fact we are socking it to the businesses and to the rich people. i find it somewhat offensive, actually. >> is there any way when you raise people's taxes by $1 trillion the middle class is unaffected? >>guest: it is interesting if you look at congressional budget office report and i seldom cite the c.b.o., they say that if you do the fiscal cliff and the huge tax increase next year we don't have less than percent unemployment, we go up to over 9 percent unemployment, a double dip recession. that is not moving failure, that is moving backward. >> today we learned the 2012 deficit had exceeded, now, $1.1 trillion. more than $1 trillion, four years in a row. >>guest: what a record. that means, and we have talked about this of with, four straight yea

his plan because he wasn't giving the obama talking points. >> well now hold on. >> the democrats have mischaracterized romney's plans up the ying yang. so when he comes forward and tells what his plans are it's a shock. they think he's lying, they think he's changed. >> it was a game changer in this respect. before the debate republicans around the country were wondering if mitt romney was going to take down the whole ticket because his campaign had been so ineffective. after the debate they were convinced he wasn't going to. he definitely had a good evening last night. whether or not it's enough to change the momentum in the race we'll know in the next few days. with respect to the plan all the democrats have done ills put a price tag. 20% across the board tax cuts make them permanent. >> that's a lie. what he said it's going to be cost neutral. >> he didn't say that until last night. >> that is just not right. he said it when he rolled it out. he said it in his speeches. >> he hasn't said how he's going to raise any revenue to make up for the losses in the tax revenue. >> since 1986

won't affect the middle class? he can't. >> eric: you know what else president obama can't do is talk about which entitlement he will cut to bring the deficit down which he promised four years ago. >> andrea: i don't think president obama has a leg to stand on when it comes to entitlements. in the last four years he created a giant new entitlement that will put the onerous taxes on the middle class. i think he has to keep president obama on defense all night. i've talked to a lot of people and they say the entire debate is about romney. romney needs to play to win. while president obama needs to play not to lose. as long as he can keep him on defense, which he can. the facts are on romney's side. i talked to a senior advisor and just saw the candidate, he is calm and in great spirits ready to go. >> bob: that is what they always say before debates. if you abandon your own vice president medicare proposals? >> dana: they answered that. >> bob: how so? >> andrea: i don't think he will let himself get trapped in the details, bob. he will take it to the president. the facts are on his sid
